Casey is a vibrant, happy, active 10 year old boy. He loves to swim and go bowling. In fact, he will be competing in a state-wide bowling championship! He looks like a regular healthy kid from the outside. Casey was born with a disease called Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction. This disease affects his stomach, intestine and bladder. He gets most of his nutrition, called TPN, through an I.V. every night. He is often hospitalized due to complications of his illness. He has had countless procedures and surgeries. Because of his frequent hospital stays, Casey has developed a one-of-a-kind relationship with the Chase Child-Life staff and volunteers. He even organizes a pretty large toy-donation drive every year and donates all of the proceeds to the Chase Child-Life program! Casey has a compassionate heart and is truly an amazing kid!
